Tempo Deep Squat – TRX

  • HOW: Get set up in a standing position with a suspension trainer anchored in front of you. Start by holding the suspension trainer handles in each hand with a soft bend in your elbow. With your feet positioned in your ideal squat form and stance, perform the exercise by slowly squatting down into a deep squat position as far as you can go. Hold the bottom of the squat for a moment (take a breath here), then return to starting position and repeat. Only use the suspension trainer for minimal assistance as needed.
  • FEEL: This should feel like a lower body workout, specifically your quads, glutes, and hamstrings. If you feel your upper body working hard, you're relying on the suspension trainer too much.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not over-rely on the suspension trainer and lean back on it with all of your weight. Only use the suspension trainer as needed. Do not rush the movement, take your time and focus on good squat form. Your hips and knees should bend at the same time, your knees should track forward over your 2-3rd toe, do not let your knees cave in.
